Here’s a meaningless exercise is hindsight – picking the best possible Fantasy League team: The team that would have scored the maximum points possible after three rounds of the competition.
Here’s what the team looks like:
(In fact, this is arbitrary. Pick any 3 props who have scored a total of 5 points over 3 rounds and you’ll be fine)
(Again, any pair will do here)
Bioplus van der Merwe
Wikus van Heerden
Willem de Waal
True Blue Smit
The above combination would have netted you an impressive 236.5 points after three rounds. This includes a total of 5 try bonus points, for scoring 9, 9 and 4 tries in rounds 1, 2 and 3 respectively. Also, the individual round scores were high enough to win the 5 point MVP bonus in each round by quite some distance.
What is absolutely staggering about this combination, is that five of the highest points scorers are not in anybody’s squad! That’s right, nobody playing in the league has any of Smit, Schutte, Peach, Cornelius or van der Merwe in their team. Looks like we all missed a trick there.
